Help! For an article about romantic conflict, I want to use a scene I thought I remembered from a TV show or film. (Most of the details have fallen into a hole in my Swiss-cheese mind.)
Young woman. Young man. They're connected in some way, like they have to work together. They don't get along well.
So at some point, he indicates in some way-- you think I'd remember this-- that he's fallen in love with her, and it's a total surprise to her.
She says, and this is the only thing I remember precisely, "But you don't even like me!"
And he kind of turns away, embarrassed. And then something happens and it all works out.
Anyway, anyone recognize that? I know it's not much. And it occurs to me, because I can't think of how they looked, that this was in a book, but I'm pretty sure it was in a movie or TV show.
This is going to plague me and make me utterly useless until someone puts me out of my misery by telling me what I mean.
